Several Homeless Following Demolitions at Shauri Moyo involving A Private Company and Milimani Court

Several people have been left homeless after government officials demolished houses on a road reserve within Shauri Moyo Slums, Nairobi, despite recent orders from the Milimani Court to stop the demolitions.

Officials claim that the expansion of Cathrene Ndereba Road from Airport Road is part of a planned exercise to improve the network in the informal settlement. This has displaced many who had leased the public land from a private company.

Government bulldozers arrived in the area this morning, accompanied by police and roads officials, with a private auctioneer expected to file a petition in court to reclaim ownership of the land.

The residents said those whose houses were demolished had been warned and compensated following an ongoing case between the private company and the Milimani High Court.

The road is part of the Nairobi Expressway and is intended to ease traffic flow on roads surrounding the highway. Those affected have been urged to move elsewhere. The lack of roads in informal settlements has had a detrimental effect on many services in general.

The road runs through the slum and is key in opening up the area, but the demolitions have left many people without a home.
